 Yes, I am finally done making 120 string blocks for my Bonnie Hunter RRCB mystery quilt.......that is a lot of strips!

While digging for "neutral" fabrics to use in the string blocks I found some scraps leftover from making this ABC quilt for my granddaughter ( yes I made it years before I had a grandchild!) well I decided to make some squares........and now yes I have...........
another UFO scrappy project!  We'll see where this one takes me.  Happy sewing.

 I started making this quilt called "X factor" from Kaffe Fassettt's 'Quilts en Provence " book using a honey bun of Mary Engelbreit's fabric line "The Caroler" along with some fatquarters of solids.

I enjoyed the scraps so much I went ahead ....

 and made a potholder and two kitchen towels
and a doll quilt.....

but haven't finished the quilt :0)

Happy sewing

Tonya's new book

Tonya's book is being released today.......its all over blogland!
Victoria over at Bumblebeans inspired me to post pictures of quilts and blocks that Tonya has inspired me to make.  I know that is a lot of inspiration........but what can I say there is a ton of talent out there!
Okay you get the idea.......I LOVE making letters....and can''t wait to get my hands on Tonya's book!
Oh by the way..this love block is on the cover of the book :0).
Happy sewing!
